The holy month of Ramadan — the ninth month of the Islamic calendar — is observed by Muslims around the world each year. Each day of this month, Muslims abstain from food, drink, smoking, and sex between the hours of sunrise and sunset. Ramadan, the month in which the Quran was revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammad, is a time to challenge yourself and focus on the mind, body, and spirituality. The daily fast allows worshippers to focus on these values rather than earthly gratifications.via Picsart
It is traditional to wish greetings and blessings to those observing Ramadan. Let’s take a look at some facts about the holy month, admire stunning Ramadan designs, and learn how to wish someone a happy Ramadan.
Facts About Ramadan
- Ramadan is followed by every Muslim man and woman from the age of puberty, about 12 or 13.
- Abstaining from food and drink (even water) during the day is meant to serve as a reminder of the poverty and need in the world. Fasters should feel compassion for the impoverished populations.
- There are exemptions granted to childless elderly people, those who are chronically ill, women who are nursing, pregnant, or menstruating, and those traveling faraway places. Those who are unable to complete their fast must pay a kaffara (atonement) donation to charity.
- It’s customary to decorate the houses with lights and shapes, and to invite relatives and friends to the meals for breaking the fast.
- An important event during Ramadan, usually marked during one of the odd-numbered days, is Laylar al-Quadr, meaning the Night of Destiny. Muslims believe that during the month of Ramadan the Prophet Mohammed received the first verses of the Koran from the angel Gabriel, so this is the holiest night in Islam. The gates of heaven are opened on that night and God is especially receptive to the requests of the worshippers.
